Bubbling answers.... Truth?

Postby Nicolena. » Sat Jun 22, 2013 3:32 pm

I know some of you will think this is ridiculous but....


Is it true you do not have to fully bubble in answers on the sccantron? What's sufficient? I usually darken the full circle. Will this really save any time?

It doesn't have to be perfectly bubbled in, but I'd still attempt to fill in the full bubble. I would not play with that fire.

The bubbles are so tiny that half way bubbling and real bubbling probably take virtually the same time. If you want to cut time in bubbling, get a couple of those LSAT bubble sheets and bubble every circle to work on your bubbling speed until it feels natural.

You know, if you want a fun little tip to slightly increase your bubbling time:

Bring a dull pencil along with your sharp pencils. Use it for bubbling (Increased surface area and whatnot). As well, don't bubble after every question but rather after entire pages.

If you write "TLS" in each bubble instead of bubbling, not only will it count, but you'll get an additional whole point added to your final score. One of the privileges of being a member of this esteemed site. :wink:

if you get your scantron back with the score sheet and there's a discrepancy about your bubbling, you can just make a claim to LSAC yes?

I used a dull pencil for all sections except LG. A dull pencil can bubble completely in 2-3 motions.

I've always felt that you can cover more ground with a bingo marker.

If only there was an LSAC-approved graphite stamp that could fill in the bubbles...

LOL Voting in my city is like the LSAT, but with a felt pen. I remember when I last voted, the ink in the pen was low so I like really voted for the guy, trying hard to make sure that bubble was filled. I don't even particularly like him, but wanted to make sure my vote counted! :p
